Originally constructed to house Ansett Australia in 1978, 501 Swanston Street’s distinguished hexagonal shape and prominent corner location has made it a well-recognised building within the Melbourne city skyline. Positioned on the northern edge of the CBD, it enjoys a close proximity to Queen Victoria Market, Melbourne Central Station and a wide range of business, transport and leisure amenities.
In 2002 PDG purchased the building from Ansett and in mid-2012 the Zagame Group became co-owners with a view to rejuvenate the premium office tower to its original stature. The major redevelopment work has now commenced.
On completion, the premium commercial address with comprise:
Roof top terrace
Refurbished lobby with new cafe/restaurant
Fully equipped gymnasium with sleeping pods and Pilates room
Showers, change rooms and lockers
Increased bike storage for 90 bikes
New state-of-the-art lifts, heating and cooling systems
501 Swanston Street is an iconic address in Melbourne’s northern CBD. When originally constructed for Reg Ansett, no expense was spared. The building was constructed to the highest quality and as a premier office building, it was well ahead of its time. Our goal is to ensure that the redevelopment work and the upgraded services will future proof this landmark building and transform it into one of Melbourne’s most innovative and enjoyable places for organisations to work. This will be achieved by providing amenities that are uniquely different to any other office building in the area, with an unwavering focus on quality design and construction.
